Everything Is Copy
Nora Ephron Scripted & UnscriptedDVD - 2016
Everything Is Copy - Nora Ephron: Scripted & Unscripted profiles the life of Nora Ephron, the writer/director who was known for her acerbic wit and whose films include such cultural touchstones as Silkwood, When Harry Met Sally, and Sleepless in Seattle. Written and directed by her son, Jacob Bernstein, the film is Bernstein's personal investigation into his mother's favorite motto, "Everything is copy" - a philosophy that all that happens in life, good and bad, is fodder for comedy. The film charts Ephron's career, starting from an early stint as a reporter for the New York Post to regular columnist for Esquire, the New York Times and Cosmopolitan; her rise to become one of Hollywood's most sought-after writer/directors; as well as her high-profile relationships with celebrities in Hollywood and in the literary world; and, in her later years, her diagnosis of myelodysplastic syndrome - an illness she kept largely a secret until her death in 2012. Everything Is Copy also features intimate interviews with many of those closest to Ephron, including her sisters Delia, Amy and Hallie, along with friends Meryl Streep, Meg Ryan, Tom Hanks, Steven Spielberg and many others. In addition, Ephron's words come to life through video and audio clips of Ephron, and through dramatic readings of her essays by Reese Witherspoon, Lena Dunham and others.
